The warrant was issued for narcotics trafficking and stolen property on the 14000 block of 108th Ave. NE in Kirkland. The residence is in close proximity to Kirkland’s Helen Keller Elementary School, daycare centers and a church. Police searched the location on Saturday to minimize community disruption.
The 54-year-old male in the residence was booked into King County Jail and charged with Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act for Heroin and Methamphetamine. His vehicle was impounded. The second male was booked and released on his own recognizance. Police recovered drug paraphernalia and multiple weapons, ranging from handguns to assault rifles, at the home.
